Abstract

The AA. use the term impoundments to refer to artificial water bodies regardless of size (reservoirs and ponds). They examine the role of these small impoundments in the sediment budget, at the sub-continental scale. Specifically, they estimate the total volume of sedimentation occurring in small impoundments and compare that quantity to other components of the fluvial sediment budget for the conterminous U.S. It is clear that most sedimentation is now taking place in subaqueous rather than subaerial environments, and that small impoundments are a major sediment sink
